USA TODAY - If a video game simulation of Super Bowl XLVIII is correct, "The 12th Man" will have a disappointing Sunday.

Electronic Arts ran its annual simulation of the Super Bowl through football video game Madden NFL 25, and it has the Denver Broncos topping the Seattle Seahawks 31-28.

According to the simulation, the Seahawks jump out to an early lead off an interception by Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman before Broncos' QB Peyton Manning leads his team on two scoring drives to take a 21-10 advantage. 

The Seahawks force the game into overtime, but the Broncos claim victory on a Matt Prater field goal.

Before you dismiss EA's Madden NFL simulation, keep in mind this formula has resulted in an 8-2 record.
